Or if you have a local goped shop, they will have a pile of them. They all take them off and add tuned pipes.

If you intend to run a century torpedo or similar I would just break it in on what ever your choice is. If you are going to run a tuned pipe then it is a little easier to break it in on a box muffler.

LOWER LOWER DOH!!!

I'm using a Century Torpedo V5 on my Hanson G260PUH and it works great. Just remember to tighten the muffler bolts a little after the first couple of flights.

I use the cheapo RJX to breakin motors with and then install the Quickdraw pipe by Don Shank for the serious power.
Enjoy.

rbort;

I know nothing about gassers, it's Saturday morning and I'm surfing around while watching it snow outside. Hey, is that electric start on the top of the spindle.. the gold thing? If so, I had no idea!!

Edit; Ok, I see that it's a generator. But why?

Hi busyflying
Sounds like you're 'busysurfin'' I'm suiting up to go fly now, 3 layers on the legs, 4 on top as its only 27F and winds up to 12mph.

You got it, it doesn't require you to charge the pack any other time besides flying. To give you an idea, when I built my whiplash I charged the pack overnight on 9/19/2012 before the maiden flight and have not charged it ever since, just flown it 150 flights so far to date. Makes the like like your car, a true gas and go no worries...that's why.

Does that mean that the ignition requires a battery pack? Sorry for the basic questions.

if you buy a PUH format engine it can come with either electronic ignition (EI) that requires battery power to run it or choose one with a magneto ignition, which does not need a battery for the engine....most agree that the EI improves engine performance over the magneto version due to weight reduction and ignition advance capability.

so if you don't run a generator you may need to recharge your RX/EI battery as often as every 3 to 5 flights (or tank fulls)....

showing a preference will only get you into trouble, 90% of everything is crap...

The EI ignition motor like the G20 for example would require a battery pack to fire off the spark. The magneto version makes its own spark and will run forever. Even with an EI motor you could still achieve true gas and go with no worries if you wanted to.

Lower (13,500 and less) engine speeds seem to favor 710's where higher engine speeds work better with 690's due to the torque curve of a gasser engine. Each pilot will have their preference, but this is what it seems to mainly boil down to.

welcome to gassers world
I love gassers and the Rbort generators on them. Make sure you get one of those. Stops the worrying about the reciever battery pack being low on voltage.

Fired that baby up a while ago!! Can't stop smiling!!

I had to shut it down with the choke. Do you guys set up a throttle cut?

Ok yeah that's what I want to do. Did you remove the idle screw on the motor?

no need for the idle screw get rid of that

you should have your idle set so that it idles a low stick with the trim at center

when trimming all the way down it should kill the engine.
